Ricky Gervais Live on Tour

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

Ricky Gervais FameI am a big fan of Ricky Gervais’s live stand up shows, I wasn’t too keen on The Office, David Brent annoyed the hell out of me but I think his comedy acts are amazing. I have both Animals and Politics on DVD and am going to try very hard to get some tickets to see his latest masterpiece called Fame.

The show is coming to London’s Royal Albert Hall in the summer but tickets are already sold out everywhere. Extra dates have now been confirmed at the Hammersmith Apollo later in September which go on sale Tuesday 20th March at 10am. I think I might have to take the morning off and sit by the phone if I want to get tickets before they sell out again. More information on the Ricky Gervais Website.
